The Land of Israel was the birthplace of the Jewish people. Here their spiritual, religious and political identity was shaped… After being forcibly exiled from their land, the people kept faith with it throughout their Dispersion and never ceased to pray and hope for their return to it and for the restoration in it of their political freedom….By virtue of our natural and Historic right, hereby declare the establishment of a Jewish State in Eretz Yisrael to be known as the State of Israel. Declaration of Independence May 14, 1948 5 Iyar 5708
In this painting we see the flag of the State of Israel seemingly alive and vibrant, testifying to the survival of the Jewish People and their future to come in a homeland of their own. The bold flagpole from which it flies proclaims ownership of the land, linking our future of the Jewish people to the land of Israel.
